If you have cut down a tree and there is nothing left but the stump, you probably think that the job is completed and the tree won’t grow back. However, in some cases, the tree can grow back.
How does a tree grow back from only a stump?
If the stump has enough nutrients left in the roots, the stump can produce little sprouts. These little sprouts feed the roots, which in turn, continues the growth of the sprouts and tree in general.
How do I know if my tree will grow back?
There is no set answer for this, but as a general guide, fast-growing trees normally grow back while slow growing trees do not.
What is an example of a tree that grew back?
Feijoa trees can be cut right down to the stump and are known to grow back in the right conditions.
Why you should remove your tree stumps
Stumps that are left in the ground can grow back when not wanted but can also become a safety hazard.
When left in the ground, people can trip over them as they are easily not seen.
Likewise, mowing the lawn can become increasingly difficult as you have to remember where the stumps are and mow around them so you don’t break your lawn mower.
